VERNON— The North Okanagan Canada Day Society will hold Annual General Meeting (AGM) next Tuesday, February 28, 2017.  Anyone interested in volunteering for the Canada Day celebrations next summer (2017) is urged to attend.

The 2016 Canada Day celebrations involved daytime activities in Polson Park and evening fireworks on Kalamalka Lake, and the Society would like to build on the success of last year's celebrations for Canada's 150th birthday.  Volunteers are needed for numerous positions, ranging from executive membership to just lending a helping hand.

"This year is Canada's 150th anniversary and Vernon's 125th anniversary," said Dave Frost, current president of the Society.  "Canada Day 2016 was a stunning success and I anticipate that 2017 will be the biggest and best Canada Day celebration ever!"

Frost is asking anyone who wants to volunteer for the 2017 celebrations to attend the AGM at 7:00 p.m. sharp on Tuesday, February 28, at the People Place (3402 - 27 Avenue).

"I'm very excited to be taking part in this historic celebration," said Scott Anderson, City Councillor and council liaison to the society.  "I was so impressed with what Dave and his team achieved last year, and look forward to an even bigger and better celebration this year."
